Volunteers maintain the grounds and assist in office management, direct mail and fundraising projects. They also help out with enclosure construction and with the delivery of feed and other supplies.
Community Service Workers assist in maintaining grounds and construction of enclosures and buildings under the direction of a full-time construction manager.
